Communication styles 101: less conflict more teamwork 

Ever been on a team where things just didn't go well – where people were at cross purposes, where feelings were hurt and deadlines missed? One of the keys to developing a great team is to understand the different communication style and create an environment that allows for everyone's best results. 

Learn how to identify the four key communication styles, and understand the motivators behind each style. Learn the art and skill of communicating so things get done faster, better and more collaboratively. 

Conquer the fear of public speaking: shine in your meetings and interviews 

Whether you're trying to nab the job interview or give a presentation to your team, your boss or your client, you want to be effective. Being effective means speaking so that people listen to you and value what you say, AND it means listening so that people feel heard. 

This interactive workshop teaches the art and skill of speaking to 1 or 100 people. We get to the core of your public speaking fears so that you can develop the skills you need to be strong and successful.

Testimonials

 As a Mediator, it is important for me to attend as many workshops and seminars as possible to ensure my professional growth and relevancy in the industry.  On more than one occasion, I have had the pleasure of attending a workshop moderated by Suzanne Sherkin.  Ms. Sherkin’s style as a moderator is perhaps the best that I have ever experienced.  In many workshops, particularly involving panel discussions, the participant speakers will provide what they feel is information of interest to the audience, rather than what the topic really is about.  I find that Ms. Sherkin has the ability to not only focus participant speakers on the topic of the workshop, but summarize what has been said that makes the information completely understandable and relevant.  Additionally, Ms. Sherkin ensures the success of the workshop or seminar by providing focus on key concepts, and identifying, if not creating, memorable phrases or concepts around the content brought forward by the presenters. 

I would without reservation recommend Ms. Sherkin as a moderator in any forum, and look forward to being a participant in more of her sessions over coming years.
